Nov. 30, 2008 - PRLog -- Teenagers can take the iPhone out for a drive so to speak, watching real life driving situations on real roads while listening to a professional driving instructor talk about the traffic and approaching situations.

A new website, http://www.teenlivedrive.com, allows teenagers to download video files that play on iPods, iPhones, iTunes and in QuickTime on desktops and laptops.

“Most schools don’t teach behind the wheel anymore, says Jim Grimm, driving instructor and coach at Reagan High School in Austin, Texas. “I think an in-the-car instructor is best, still an in-the-car instructor online is great, since many kids wind up tuning out a parent.”

“It would take me weeks and who knows how many gallons of gas to drive my teenagers through all the scenarios at teenlivedrive.com, says Bernice Smith, a mother of three teenagers in St Louis, Missouri.  “And it’s especially nice that I can put something educational on the iPod, a player teenagers live on.”
 
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that car crashes are the leading cause of death among teens, nearly 6000 every year and some 300,000 injured.
NHTSA promotes a graduated driver licensing system, where young drivers satisfy staggered requirements before full driving privileges, a system that has shown a reduction in crashes.

“I know that this video instruction is the next best thing to actually driving with a parent ”, says Paul Greenway, producer of the video content. “And I think the on the road driving at teen live drive fits nicely with a graduated licensing program.”

“All subjects in school are important but in a way I think drivers education is most important “, says Grimm. “I mean not being able to add can’t kill you, not knowing what to do behind the wheel can be lethal.”
